Lazio’s Zaccagni Feels “It’ll Be Exciting to Play Against Certain Teams” in UEL Playoff

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio midfielder Mattia Zaccagni was positive after the team’s 0-0 draw against Galatasaray last night.

Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 26-year-old Italian midfielder first commented on the performance in the match against the Turkish side.

We could have exploited certain situations better, but we found a team that defended well.

We’ll play in the round of 16, it’ll be exciting to play against certain teams even if it was better to qualify for the round of 16 today.

However, we will prepare well for these matches.

The Lazio midfielder touched on what more the Biancocelesti could have done in last night’s match.

They managed the match, they were good at that, we could have been more concrete up front.

We were orderly on the pitch, good pressing and good dribbling. We’re on the right path.

Finally, Zaccagni discussed coach Maurizio Sarri’s requests and the team’s growth so far this season.

The important thing is to keep on working and the goals will come, today we didn’t score any, maybe with a bit more luck we will.

The coach asks us to be orderly in order to have a good dribbling and find the way to the goal.

The 26-year-old Zaccagni has made 12 appearances across all competitions so far this season for the Biancocelesti, for a total of 599 minutes. In that time, he has provided three assists.

Lazio’s draw against Galatasaray last night means that they finished second in Group E. They have not directly qualified for the Round of 16, and instead need to win a playoff against a third-placed Champions League team.
